The NC State Constitution is under assault by conservative Republicans who are all about "less government," unless it is on an issue they deem "necessary" to address.
This amendment is bigotry in its thrust.
From Q Notes:
The proposed constitutional amendment, held at bay for seven years by the formerly Democratically-controlled legislature, would not only ban recognition of same-sex marriages but any kind of relationship recognition for gay couples. The amendment could also ban private companies based in the state from offering domestic partner benefits.
At United Church of Chapel Hill we signed a petition against this amendment.
Fight and sign!
